Burned Bibles

Unsolicited Bibles, sent to Afghanistan by an American church, were burned by the US Army to prevent their distribution.

Any perception that the US was trying to convert Afghans to Christianity would have endangered US troops and civilians. The military forbids troops from any religion from proselytizing. As for the method of disposal: "Troops at posts in war zones are required to burn their trash."
